Hi! I'm Eric Miller. I'm borrowing the idea (hey, it's new to me!) of a Geeklist to track as much of what I play, and when.

I'll still use the stats, but this allows me to put in alternate rules, settings, etc. for things that may not be in the database.

...And now that I've slept, I think I'll turn this into more of a daily journal type of list. I'll list a game I play that day, or something else related to something game related- that means there may be a number of "unpublished prototypes" listed...

It's not a "favorites" list or a "challenge" list. Just mostly a journal of 2016 and stuff I want to keep track of.

And I'm mostly doing this to try to keep in one place things I do (or find) here on BGG/RPG/VGG...

Played solo twice tonight. Didn't win either game.

So, this is the first game of 2016.

Played while watching the Liberty Bowl. It's nice to play- not a lot of thinking going on.

Played only one game- scored 59. Used the low-ink file I uploaded (shameless self-promotion).

But if you're new to the game, this is an easy way to get used to see how some parts of it work, and get used to the lingo of the game.

Well, to be honest, I didn't play the game. Jan 3 my son went through his Eagle Court of Honor to officially get his Eagle rank. I really do have the game.

We spent half the day setting up and getting ready for it. Congressman Bill Flores was the guest speaker.

Didn't get much of anything done today (notice it is the day after...!) but I did spend some time with Inkscape working on the art for a game...

No plays for me- it was mostly yardwork today. All the rain and warm temperatures here in Texas means I have a yard full of dead leaves AND growing grass to mow... Maybe there's a game about that somewhere...

So after going in to work for a bit today, the weather continued to hold up and all the Christmas lights came down!

So no, I didn't play the game- it's just a representation of what I did today and yesterday- getting all that stuff off my lawn...

So no, I didn't play this game. I sat and graded and worked on my game. I have the "unpublished prototype" listed, so I figured I'd do like yesterday and put something related to today up.

Yep. Tacos for dinner. They've been cooking in the slow cooker all day. We do this about once a week.

(Oh, I'm almost to the point where I'll put my game up! I need another round of testing to see how it goes....)

Currently trying to play this... Found the copy I had printed out, finally got around to cutting it and getting it ready to play.

And actually, found several other games I have printed but not yet set up to play. I saw a microbadge dealing with this same situation: All print and no play. I may have to go look for that one.

Waiting on the 18 Card MicroGame Contest [2015] - Results finalists to be revealed. I don't expect either of my games to get in. But it was fun trying!

Back to watching the Stars...

Well, no real game playing today. Bummer. Had depressing meetings this morning, and more work once I returned home. There are good and bad things about so much of the technology we have today... But that's for a later thing...

In any case, today's (yesterday's) entry is one of the games I submitted for the 2015 18-card game contest. The finalists were announced today, and I was not one of them. I totally expected that. This was my first contest and my first real public attempt at game design. Learned a lot and got a lot of great ideas for things.

In any case, I'm going to clean this up a bit and submit it to the database. It already has a re-theme, so I'll ask if I can upload that too.

And now that I've worked on this for just over a week, I'll post some links to this around BGG and see if it strikes a chord with anyone else. I've seen few that are like this, so maybe... (I'll have to come back and edit this once I get the image ID...)

Again, a day behind... sigh....

Started playing, but didn't finish. Crafted (ok, cut out) two more map sets to play with. Decided I need to dig out some of my old painted minis to use.

Oh, and see about making a western theme for this. Maybe turn the tables a bit- the "good" guys could be robbers in a mine and the "bad" guys could be a posse after them...

Yeah, no.

My son headed back to LSU today for semester #2 of his college career.

And watched football. Some of the English kind and some of the American kind.

Discovered this today. At least that's what I'm putting down anyway.

I'm going to try to turn this into actual classwork. I'll have to modify it since it needs to deal with politics, but I think I can do that. My students may not agree, but it's just their grade...

And found this one today. Got it printed off and started reading rules.

Now to get it printed out (why aren't there enough backs for all the cards?) and then to try and play.

I've had this one a while, and motivated by the 2016 Solo Challenges SUBSCRIPTION entry #7, I finally played it. Here's the actual competition: Utopia Engine Challenge.

It didn't go well. It wasn't a good day.cry

Well, I spent a bit of time looking back at this contest.

My first contest. I didn't make the final cut. I'm cool with that.

Final voting is coming up, so I went back through the list to see what games I had already printed, and what ones I would need to print. I'll get my list together, and maybe I'll get to play a game or two this weekend.

Maybe.

I had wondered what I would put for today, and there it was. A geeklist giving away stuff. I had seen it earlier, but like many things here on the 'geek, I totally forgot where it was.

And now I found it again. And put in on my list. And maybe I'll keep coming back!

In light of the playoff games...

Visiting teams all won last week. A little odd. I tried to get my wife to play, but no- she took a nap instead. And then missed the OT of Packers-Cardinals.

And another football game for Sunday.

And all the home teams won this time. The Steelers tried...

Saw a stat that the last 15 years of Super Bowls have had one of three quaterbacks in them- and so will this year: Manning or Brady...

Yep. Pulled this out as I went through all the LEGO I have laying around. I'm still not done sorting it all out. Why?

I'm hoping to build a dice tower. With stuff.

Awhile back, I suggested a contest for 2016- the most Rube Goldbergiest Dice Tower.

I have no idea how to run a contest- I think one like this might push some limits- LOTS of photos & videos. And I have no idea what I would do for judging. Or prizes.

So, I went through my old LEGO (some is 40 years old) and gave a bit of thought about sorting all the pieces.

And then I remembered I had the day off. So I took a nap.snore

Last year's contest was my first real involvement on this site. It was fun seeing all the things folks came up with.

And so I've been participating in this year's discussion. It's kinda like a virtual meeting, with folks coming and going as they see fit. Honestly, it probably beats a regular F2F meeting- I had one of those today (I know, but today's entry is #20...)

Thanks Chris!

Found this on another geeklist. So now I've got it printed out, I just have to cut it out and put it together. Maybe I can win this one...

I'll come back with a comment if I ever get a game under my belt...

Actually, the "Infinite Board Game."

Played a game as I switched around on hockey games. And glad I'm not on the east coast.

I've actually thought of a few games to play with the piecepack. Now to find some time to maybe try them out.

I won, but after checking things in the game area, I found I played it the easy way- I read the rules to my advantage.

I played the hex version since I thought it was newer and had updated rules. Turns out, not so much.

Participated in a demo play at my FLGS today.

It was pretty fun- nice cooperating with five other folks I'd never met before. We did win the game with one Trial card left.

Not really fun enough for me to get my own copy. There's enough other games I have to play.

Just found this one today. Once again, love a game I can play in a small space for a turn here and there...

And it's bowling!

I still can't bowl. Doesn't matter if it's real, dice or cards. I won't win.

Oh well...
